Youngest Media Founder Launches New Studio


Youngest Media founder David Flynn, creator and producer of shows such as Million Pound Drop, Game of Clones, Moneybags and Small Fortune, has set up the new studio Plegazoid.

Plegazoid has already secured an exclusive joint venture agreement with South Shore, producer of the recent Channel 4 hit Don’t Look Down, to develop and produce non-scripted formats.

South Shore is backed by ITV Studios, which will also work alongside Plegazoid to develop its ideas for global audiences via its creative network, as well as handling international distribution for the joint venture. Two projects are already at the pilot stage with U.K. broadcasters.

Flynn said: “We’re on the hunt for Plegazoids, those counterintuitive ideas that nobody else has thought of. Andy, Mel and the South Shore team share my desire to launch these shows, and their creativity and independent spirit make them the perfect partner to join forces with.”

Andrew MacKenzie, CEO of South Shore, said: “David is one of the smartest people in the industry. He’s got an incredible track record, and his talent, personality and ambition make him the perfect fit to partner with South Shore. We couldn’t be happier to be launching this joint venture with him.”
